    'Subject' en español es 'la asignatura/las asignaturas'. ¡Hombre! ¿Ya tú estudias cinco asignaturas? ¡Debes estar muy ocupado! Sí. Otra asignatura sería demasiado, y no serías tiempo libre.

    Thanks for the tip. I tried using the Alt-codes but switched to AltGr because there's less to remember. (I'm pretty lazy.)

    Ojalá mi colegio pudiera offrir más idiomas como el italiano y el portugués porque sería tan interesante poder estudiar y aprender el chino por ejemplo. Vivía en Hong Kong cuando tenía menos años(0-3) y de vez en cuando me da rabia de que no más vivo allá, fue una oportunidad genial! :mob::mob::mob:

    And my Latin composition sucks, not even going to bother trying!
    Ah vivías en Hong Kong? Te gustaba la ciudad? O quizá no te acuerdas de nada porque ya ha pasado tanto tiempo? Eres chino/a?

    Hehe Like I said I've forgotten everything; I don't even know if that sentence was correct.

    In a negative sentence, you cannot use o but ni. Kinda like how we use neither nor.

    Just don't worry about it yet!

    And considering that I generally advocate learning grammar in depth from day one, my admonition to forget about it is doubly significant!

    Desafortunadamente, no me me acuerdo de la mayoría, excepto 'The Peak' y la funiculaire y las tiendas claro! Sin embargo, mi padre todavía vive en Hong Kong para ganar dinero. No soy chino, soy inglés. Eres chino/a?

    Don't forget that Spanish also uses diaeresis on Us too (ü). Even my Spanish lecturer at uni forgot to teach us it, she claimed Spanish only used acute accents too
    Diaeresis? Is it not just an umlaut?

    Oh of course, but honestly, how often do you use it? :rolleyes: I wouldn't have learnt it if our teacher hadn't taught us the word piragüismo.
    Also "bilingüe" - appropriate considering the thread

    Oh, I didn't know it was German - I just assumed that was what it was called! You learn a new thing every day!

    How I wish I could actually speak Dutch fluently...Only way I could stand a chance of getting a top grade in that very tough community-language A-level.

    Maar opgeven, zal ik nooit!

    Blah. I've just been studying Spanish for an hour and now I'm studying German. Always when I switch from one language to the other, the previous one keeps popping into my head. "Die Frau bebe Wasser." Haha, NO!

    Thanks to you! as far as I can see the first example can be translated literally?
    I'm not sure about that. It looks to me like it means something specific, which the translation given doesn't, really. Unfortunately I don't quite know what it means if that is the case.

    The second I would assume is 'if it weren't/wasn't for you...', as in (for example) 'if it wasn't for you, I'd be totally lost right now'.

    That seems like a really random place to be drafted.
